SSL in Portal just for ESS-MSS App

Hi Everyone,

Is there anyway to use the HTTPS just for ESS -Mss application in SAP Portal EP7 EHP1 or to use the secure connection we should switch Portal to https?

We implement our internal portal (HTTP) , with ESS-MSS connected to SAP ECC, As we are adding more functionality to ESS-MSS looking for more security.

Any Idea?

Thanks,

    Hi,

    AFAIK, you need to activate HTTPS for the entire system. Activating https for specific applications is not possible.

    By default it's all or nothing.

    You may install the ESS/MSS BP on another server that is accessed by HTTPS and integrate this server into your portal by the mean of an iFrame or by an external link.

    As a workaround you can put a Javascript in the WSS/MSS roles / worksets that checks if the connection is HTTP and switches the protocol to HTTPS (may include a (partial) page refresh). When the user navigates away from the ESS/MSS pages another Javascript switches the protocol back to HTTP.
